Geriatric Dentistry

It refers to Dental Care in relation to elders
Like children, elders also need to be made psychologically comfortable at the outset
Elders, with their experience, tend to have dental issues like missing teeth, wear and tear of reminding teeth, gum problems, etc
Palliation is very important in Geriatric care
Care should be taken to preserve the remaining teeth and restore the missing teeth
The maintaining of dental health is directly proportional to their systemic health because proper digestion is only possible with good dental health
